VFW Commander-in-Chief Visits Minnesota
The VFW National Commander, William (Bill) Thien, visited several VFW Posts throughout Minnesota and even made stops in the 8th District. Although I have yet to receive pictures and information from Deer River or Grand Rapids, I do have pictures from the Duluth VFW Post 137 visit. The Commander spoke about the importance of the relationships the VFW has with the Auxiliaries and how well we have been working together. He also spoke about testifying before Congress and the current events with the VA. He tried to visit with everyone present and answer questions one-on-one with individuals. The members of the Post and 8th District gave him and his entourage a warm welcome with cake and coffee and the Commander-in-Chief walked away with a souvenir T-shirt, challenge coin and acrylic plaque to remember his visit to Duluth.
